Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Anyone got Phantom photos made from "the hill" near the fence :?:
Yes, that pass was low, almost as low as the "Solo Turk" landing... :shock:

First, a big thank you to all at Geilenkirchen who made this day possible!
Some images from me then, I noticed the big bird in the image of the Czech C.295M only the moment I deleted the image as something obscured my camera as I took the image, hence the yellow blob in the bottom of the image. I wonder how close to a birdstrike that was...

This Casa was the first visitor on that day (unfortunately the French AF Awacs E-3F cancelled, so the Casa would have been the 2nd)

This Suchoi was doing a very very low landing approach!!

Oh dear, there was no sign of the Runway Threshold so far. Guess those guys have to train a bit more ;-) He first was asked to do a Low Approach, which was granted by one of the crew members but denied again within just only a couple of seconds, by the other one!!
If they may see this video of their approach, it might have been better to decide to do a "go around"!!

I don't know where you've had postioned yourself, but there was enough space at the second hill, with almost, I would say 10 to 15 people standing around. There also had been a few guys with high ladders, but it's only a thing of talking to each other and organisation at the scene, so that you won't have one of these "tree ladders" you were talking about, in your viewing area (despite one idiot which jumped into my view with it's 4-step ladder, just during the landing of Solo Türk, which itself had been very low)
